BLACKLINE FOR CONSUMER PRODUCTS & SERVICES

Centralizing, standardizing, and automating up to 97% of accounting work

image

The modern consumer has access to unlimited choices and an abundance of information. Buyers expect a convenient experience with products that align to their values.

Consumer products and services accounting teams must adapt to help respond to rising expectations. Modern accounting can help accounting teams save time, reduce risk, and create capacity to support their organizations’ strategic objectives.

See why leading companies like Energizer, PepsiCo, and 58% of the Fortune 50 trust BlackLine for financial close automation, visibility, and control.

“We were looking for a holistic solution… the solution had to extend beyond account recs. We wanted to make sure the solution was something that Finance could own.”

John Zimmerman, Director of Financial Data Systems

CASE STUDY
logo

“Pre-BlackLine, everything was very scattered. We didn’t have a centralized area and there’s a lot of roll-forward, that minutiae of doing reconciliations that we were focused on. Now, we get to focus on the fun parts of Accounting.”

Michael Hubbard Manager, Finance Innovation & Transformation, The Home Depot

“With BlackLine, we now have a platform where everything is in one place. The supporting documentation is right there. Anyone can look at it. And because approvals are systematic, we never have to ask if a reconciliation was approved. It’s all in BlackLine.”

Julie Egan

Vice President, Finance Shared Services
